I got about half-way through in 2007 when I was dealing with my own bi-polar diagnosis. I can tell she likes poetry. She is very descriptive about her moods and what happened to her. The book was gathering dust under the bed, but I picked it up after I read I Trust When Dark My Road. I was able to finish it quickly. An excellent book and a classic about bi-polar illness. She's honest, candid and what a survivor. I could really relate to what she wrote, but she's been able to accomplish so much. I end up feeling like a major slacker, which feeds into my "I'm not going to do anything I should be doing but reading all these classics about bi-polar and depression that I can review on Good Reads." Thank goodness I'm off the couch. It's time to read some other stuff.
